As the first auction house to register a sale on a blockchain platform, Christie’s has maintained its position at the forefront of innovation in the art world. Christie’s Art+Tech Summit, an annual two-day conference, is part of an ongoing initiative to spark dialogue about the role and potential impact of emerging technologies in the art world. Launched in 2018 with an inaugural summit dedicated to blockchain, the series highlights a different technology each year, drawing the top minds and tech innovators from various industries for a programme of lectures, talks, panel discussions and networking opportunities. Past summits have led to tangible collaborations and inspiring ideas that have moved the industry forward. We aspire to continue this trend at our next Art+Tech Summit on 2 March 2023 in Dubai.

Past participants and attendees have included Galaxy Digital, TIME, Microsoft, Artsy, Deloitte, the Serpentine Galleries, ConsenSys and the Financial Times.
